30 Day Blogging Challenge – Day 5

Hallo! Welcome to Day 5 of the 30 Day Blogging Challenge that I am doing with Maggie and Cheila. Because of timezones, I am now onto Day 5 after reading their Day 4 entries!

Day 5 is all about Growing Up.

I feel like this could be interpreted in many ways. You could take it to mean growing up, as in literally growing from baby to adult. Or in terms of life lessons, and learning those essential life skills and lessons that shape you into the you right now. To stop myself from becoming too philosophical, let’s go with just growing up from baby to adult.

I’ve done a few posts of my life and past, so let’s try do a summary.


I was born…at home on the living room floor. As my Dad is so fond of telling this story, I was a homebirth.

Friends for Days Tag

Friends for Days Tag

I have been meaning to do this tag for a while! I love this, as it’s a great way to show support for other blogs, and has led me to finding some cool new blogging friends 😀


  • Say who create the Tag and provide a link to their blog;
  • Do a blog post showing your Tag;
  • Add the logo to the post;
  • Always thank the person who nominated you, provide a link to their blog and, if you like, say something positive and supportive about their blog;
  • Choose 5 bloggers that you don’t know very well or that are just starting their blog;
  • Go over to their blogs and read a few posts, like and comment;
  • Say 3 things you love about their blogs; (3 things for each blogger);
  • Those 5 bloggers are automatically nominated to do the same!
  • Nominate two bloggers who have been doing this for a longer time! (you get 7 nominees). Don’t forget to let them know you’re nominated them!

A message from the creator herself:

“Dear bloggers, my name is Cheila and I blog over at pink for days. I would love to get to know you and your blog, so feel free to stop by and leave a link. I would be happy to read your posts and to support you in any way I could.”

So, technically I wasn’t tagged. But Cheila recently made a post inviting everyone to take part. So this is me, taking part. I do suggest everyone go over and check out Cheila. She posts daily about her life, thoughts, wellbeing, and will also let us know what she plans to do that day, with an update at the end of the day. I find this inspiring, because I hardly get things done that I should.

I was struggling on this, because I am a huge fan of Futurama. I love that show to bits, but I also love Firefly. In the end, I will devote this post to Firefly, because I have watched the show in it’s entirety so many many times.
